Netman, sorry to read the bad news.
Man, getting older has its setbacks. I'm currently sitting out due to bone spurs on my big toe (surgery to come).
I just wanted to point out another board on which I've found useful info. It's healthboards.com. Granted, it's not tennis specific, but you can usually find more people who've encountered injuries similar to your own.
Wishing you a speedy recovery so you can back between the lines asap.
